The Dark is an interactive virtual world that challenges how we perceive the real world. Explore and interact with virtual ghosts from our past, using only your ears and your imagination.
Let your ears guide you through this stunning interactive experience
The Dark installation provides a unique experience using the latest digital sound technology to create three-dimensional soundscapes. Filled with the virtual ghosts of the past, The Dark challenges the way we perceive our surroundings by looking at how we interpret a world without visual cues.
The website and installation complement and support each other, presenting different versions of the same original material through different types of interactive engagement. This original material is a combination of specially commissioned music, sound effects and the reminiscences of ghosts re-living significant moments in their lives. These ghosts tell of their experiences as slave traders, sea captains and slaves who passed through the ports of Liverpool and Bristol.
The Dark is an original work created by Braunarts Braunarts and commissioned specially for Culture Online.
